Review I have read numerous books by Winter Renshaw–I’ve yet to be disappointed. Renshaw tackled death, organ donation, and starting over in a unique and intriguing way yet staying true to who the the characters are. Astaire appears to be the stereotypical Kindergarten teacher. A woman who looks at the silver lining and has aContinue reading “Review: The Cruelest Stranger by Winter Renshaw”
I didn’t realize that there are two other books that follow the character in the book. Only one scene did I feel like there might be more to this book or other books that will help me understand these characters better. I will be getting the two books before this: Let’s Get Textual and I Wanna Text You Up.
Monty Andrews left her sheltered life with her parents and younger brother after being cheated on by her fiance. That is when she realized that she lives for other people and says “yes” to everything. All of this conformity has come at a cost–a loss of her identity. Monty moves in with her twin sister. She decides that her “yes life” is over. She’s going to take more chances, do more things. That’s how she ended up at a bar with her sister, Denny. Oh, and making out in said bar with a gorgeous tatted up stud in the women’s restroom. Both things she would have NEVER done before. Oh, how his hands, and mouth feels on her skin. The knock on the door brings her to her senses–literally.
Sean has been with Vira for over a year and a half, yet he cannot get her to commit to him. What guy wouldn’t want Vira–she’s incredible in bed and a little spitfire. Sean can barely get her to talk to him. The only think he knows about her job is that she hates it. He can’t get her to open up to him. He finally walks away from her. Only she keeps coming back–he keeps letting her in.
He’s not what she wants. She’s not what he’s looking for. Yet somewhere amidst all the incense fumes, the lines between student and teacher get blurred.
Even as their deep breathing exercises become nights filled with panting and gasps, Stéphanie can’t ignore the darkness that never quite leaves Ace’s eyes. It’s a darkness she knows far too well, and if she’s not careful, the cost of helping Ace find his way might just be losing herself.
Jack Darcy appears to have it all–a rich surgeon from an influential family of doctors and researchers. Oh and he is drop dead gorgeous with high end condo. But yet, Jack is incredibly single. Without a single prospect. It doesn’t help that he keeps screwing up every first date. How was he supposed to know that his date was NOT pregnant?! Or that he would blank out and forget the name of his date. It’s not his fault that he ordered a meat lover’s pizza while on a date with a vegan. Why would a vegan agree to a pizza date? Jack is awkward around women with the exception of his best friend, Allie Jenkins. Allie and Jack have known each other since birth. Ok, more like a few weeks later. But still. Their parents work together and are friends. Jack is a few years older than Allie but that doesn’t stop Jack from dreaming about her. He hopes that she can help him. More importantly, he hopes that all these lessons lead him to her heart. He thought that would be crystal clear to Allie after a disastrous double date where their dates ended up making out in the hallway. But instead that made her even more determined. He was determined to show her how he felt.
